CP Motion Simulator at Dave & Busters in Chicago

Thursday, December 20, 2001 2:03 PM
Went to D&B in Addison, IL today and they have a 2 person motion simulator with 6 CP Rides ( Mantis, Blue Streak, Mean streak, XL200, Gemini, Iron Dragon). Not a bad ride.  Great to get a little mid winter riding. Too bad no MF.

Do they have this at all the Dave and Busters. I'm curious if they have it in the one in Homestaed, near Pittsburgh.

They have one of those rides in the arcade at The Treasure Island hotel in Las Vegas.  That's where I went on one and it was actually pretty cool.  Nothing too great though.

Unfortunately, not all of the Dave & Buster's have them.  The stores in Cincinnati and Columbus have them...Cleveland had one, but it was pulled out due to mechanical issues - I don't know if it's been brought back yet.  I believe they are in about half of the stores.  I don't know for sure about Pittsburgh.

Does anyone know if either of the two Atlanta locations have them?  I doubt it because hardly anyone here has even heard of CP.

Buffalo Bills has one. It didn't look too interesting.

Enchanted Castle in Lombard also had a coaster simulator last year. Dont know if they still have it. It was a wooden coaster but I have no idea which one it was. Anyone know?

I think the one at Buffalo Bill's is the kid version becuase next to that they have one of those ones with the OTSR's that goes upside down.

I rode this ride at the Arundel Mills Mall in Columbia, MD. Funny thing is I didn't have exactly 3 dollars to ride at the time, so I was watching this guy as he started up the lift hill of Magnum, and he asked me if I would like to ride. So I got a free ride, pretty cool. It was fun, but sometimes I think I could have done a better job putting one of my friends in a chair in front of a video of the coaster and start tilting the chair. The motions were a little late in some points, but overall it was fun, nonetheless.

These simulators can be found in MANY arcades....I remember one at Pier 39 in San Fran.  Still haven't tried the SERIOUS VR simulators...I think they're called VR2000 or something like that.

There is now one of those at VA's # 1 Tourist attraction. No, not Mount Vernon...or Monticello...nor BGW...not PKD. Its at Potomac Mills Mall. (Can't you tell how disgusted I am with my state?)

Finally found out which Dave & Buster's have them...Cincinnati(Springdale), Cleveland(Westlake), Columbus OH(Hilliard), Chicago(Addison), and Jacksonville FL.  Some of these machines are still going through some software/hardware revisions to correct some timing and lockup issues, but they (Ronbotics) almost have the bugs worked out.  The one here in Columbus has been running great since a software change.  Now if they'd just add Millenium Force...

Currently, over 50 places have a Cedar Point motion simulator. They first came out in 2000 so that is why Millennium Force is not on it. I am sure we will see these things pop-up almost everywhere(by Cedar Point). Most arcades in Detroit have one, ditto for Cleveland(I a few places wiht them).

It funny Cedar Point has two in their arcade....
